the Yip family was walking around on the main deck,
looking at the evening sky when they heard noises below. They turned around and
saw smoke rising from a cabin. The crew members of the ship set to work, running
about frantically, tending to the fire that
had started. the Captain's voice could be heard over the loud speakers, telling
the passengers to calmly proceed to the main deck. those who were already on the
main deck were advised to stay in the area.
Some crew members handed out life
jackets to the passengers, in case the situation worsened. Most of the
passengers were more curious and amused than worried about the fire. they looked
on eagerly. The Yip family noticed how spacious the main deck was. With all the
passengers standing on it, they still had room to move about.
In half an hour, the smoke disappeared. The Captain's voice could be heard
once more, telling that the fire was under control. It had started because of a
cigarette butt that was left on the bed.
